Good find, Jim. Don't think I've ever ventured back that far into Joni before. Wasn't she just a naive little cutie before David Crosby got his hands on her?

"...naive little cutie..."

Damn, I couldn't agree more, and I think I like that phrase as much as "sweetums", though I doubt I can get away with using it with anyone other than Dire.

[Speaking of the wolf, it warms my heart to see him elevated to everyone's "first choice for pot shots" when the opportunity arises in posts here--which is often!--as he just somehow deserves the attention...and he takes it like a man--er, dog--lying down.]

Dire is good for potshots because he'll potshot you right back and won't be nasty about it (ok, sometimes he's nasty - but he knows who deserves it). You, on the other hand, avoid being baited on account of the fear and respect you generate amongst the forum drones because nobody really understands what you're saying, though it sounds so totally plausible that no one dare challenge you for fear of being ridiculed.

No one dare challenge?

I dare. Well, the fact that I have had quite the exposure to ridicule in these parts myself has left me nearly oblivious to the slings and arrows of the masses. As we are presented with one long-winded, circuitous rambling after another by our good friend, fear not that if an opportunity for ridicule exists, I shall find it.

Exposed to ridicule indeed, Sir Hollow? Mayhap thy breeches stand in need of mending. T'is but the exposure of a small matter after all.

If my breeches are in need of any mending, I am sure I shall not call upon you and your thimble. Well, I may need your help prying Dire off. Nothing like a pair of breached breeches to get him all riled up.

And in the future, I really hope you'll keep your attention off my cod piece.

dire is good about getting the elbows underneath the basket , and only returning a nasty blow if called on . A skill I haven't mastered quite yet . Too much one size fits all if you get my attention in that department , and that size is nasty .
I understand WT most of the time . I think . I do not think I could be nasty to WT . Too afraid of hurting his feelings . And mine . Gentle ridicule ? Hmmm. That I think I could do . Maybe .

"dire is good about getting the elbows underneath the basket"

What's elbow done now to deserve such ill treatment?


I'm sure you can learn when to be nasty and when not to.

Fuck off, laddie, I have no time for such effete fripperies - not when there's honest drinking to be done.

It sadly seems the wonder of a good Martini eludes you . And lay off the fripperies .
I do wonder where such honest drink is from ?
Islay ?
Cask Strength ?
Out of a glass able to brain someone through , in a fit , or not , of murder ?

Zen martini: A martini with no vermouth at all. And no gin, either.

Loosen up and lighten up. You're trying too hard.

It's just me . It's not life .

I always enjoyed Mr. O'Rourke . Mr. Horowitz made a similar journey I believe .
Is the glass filled with Zen ?

Naive... certainly not when it comes to music. As a guitar teacher of mine once said, "Joni Mitchell ran circles around the rest"

Check out this "California" song of hers...

unlike any other musician of her time in my opinion.

I bow to no one in my appreciation of Joni Mitchell's accomplishments as a composer and performer. That wasn't the point of the comment.
